What's the good style?

Bibek Bhattacharya     March 16, 2008

Pleats or flat fronts—which one should you wear on a formal occasion?

It’s an old dilemma, and although the flat-front trouser wins Round I for sleekness, the pleats win back the next round for sheer comfort. Seriously though, while the flat-front trouser has an unfussy feel about it, pleats are the best friend of a more generous waist. And while flat-fronts are the last word if you have a compact figure, pleats help put the breaks in for the longer limbed gents. See? All square!
